Avengers: Endgame Re-release

LOL! All in the name of box office records! 

On Tuesday, Marvel announced plans for a re-release of Avengers: Endgame – they are including bonus material and hoping to attract die-hard fans.

Those attending what Marvel is calling the “Bring Back Event” at participating US cinemas will also receive limited-edition Avengers artwork – a statement on the company’s website announcing the move featured a poster with Tony Stark’s catchphrase “We Love You 3000”. 

The main motivation, of course, is the fact that the megahit draws agonizingly close to breaking the global box office record.

Avengers: Endgame pulled in $2,751,033,067 around the world, according to Box Office Mojo as at June 25, 2019 – the second-highest haul of all time, closely trailing Avatar by just $36.4 million. 

And the James Cameron epic had yielded a $2,787,379,087 haul in ticket sales in its 238-day run in cinemas worldwide. 

I am not too surprised by Marvel's move – let's see if it can help the movie become the all-time No. 1. 

Yesterday, I was in Petaling Jaya, Selangor – to keep a date with the MIMPJ Toastmasters Club. FYI, this arrangement was made since April 18 this year! 

Whatever it is, I delivered my 765th assignment, a CC#5 Your Body Speaks titled The Dead Don’t Die – this time, it is for my Competent Communication manual, round #60. 

I was voted Best Project Speaker.

At the meeting, I also took up the role of the Grammarian.
